"Mat Dugard is a graduate of the University of Highlands and Islands, Perth; Contemporary Art and Contextualised studies BA Honours.
At its core Dugard’s practice is about making sense of images and exploring meaning through context. We live in a fast-paced world and painting to Dugard is a way of slowing things down. To him it is important to take something out of the breakneck, saturated flow of today’s culture in the hope of preserving it. Creating a chance to digest it, before moving on"
Mat Dugard has a multidisciplinary art practice working in both traditional to digital to create vibrant, conversational artworks. From Graphic Design to Murals, from screenprints to mix media paintings Dugard is driven to connect people to ideas through a diverse set of craftmanship.
